what is nfc
What is NFC?
  • Near field Communications (NFC) is the name given to a short range wireless communication protocol covering a distance of 2-5cm
  • NFC chips in devices enable data to be exchanged (e.g. contact details) by bringing the devices within range, or touching them together
  • NFC is compatible with, and incorporates a range of existing RFID standards providing interoperability with contactless payments and ticketing infrastructure.
nfc consumer applications

NFC Smart Posters
  • A poster combined with an RFID tag becomes “Smart”
    • RFID tags can store up to a few KB of data:
      • URL
      • Promotion data
      • Location data
      • Security data
  • The RFID tag provides a link to the internet from the physical world:
    • Touch phone to tag to connect to URL
    • Tag authenticity can be verified by phone application
    • Browse URL, get info, sign up/login, purchase goods, get vouchers etc
    • Limitless applications
example use cases
Example Use Cases

Download media content from poster

Send links to friends

Purchase a product from a poster

nfc competing technologies
NFC: Competing Technologies
  • There are currently four ways that a person can obtain virtual information from a physical advertisement:
    • Phone number / e-mail address / URL
      • Cheap to deploy as part of print image
      • Impulse response is lost, majority are forgotten
    • SMS Message to a short-code
      • Long range (users don’t need to be within arms reach)
      • Compact (no tags, just text characters)
      • Cost can be high, many users weary of hidden charges & spam
      • Has to be remembered if no coverage (eg on tube)
    • Bluecasting
      • Bluetooth widely adopted in Handsets
      • Intrusive, invasion of privacy, costly to deploy
    • Scan/snap barcode
      • Most handset have hi-res screen and camera
      • Time consuming, unreliable, specialist scanners
nfc technology advantage
NFC Technology Advantage
  • NFC compliments existing SMS marketing campaigns
    • a cheaper, more convenient and more novel service discovery channel
  • Simple user experience
    • touch & follow instructions
  • Inherent security
    • Can be enhanced further with tag-level security
  • NFC gives the user control
    • Users must physically opt in to get data (or Blue-cast)
  • NFC/RFID infrastructure
    • Can work with existing readers & cards
    • With secure element can store ‘virtual’ payment/loyalty cards
nfc consumer research
NFC Consumer Research
  • Glue4 funded an NFC usability trial with our partner Foolproof
    • Two focus groups:
      • Early adopters of technology
      • Late adopters of technology
    • In-depth Interviews:
      • 8 people of varying experience with technology
    • Respondents were given Nokia 3220 phones with the Glue4Touch NFC application installed and a variety of smart poster scenarios to play with
    • Overall response was very positive
      • Biggest concerns were security and cost. Some were worried that data could be extracted from the phone without their knowledge. Estimates of how much it would cost to touch a poster varied widely. Education essential.
      • Users like the idea of collecting data on their phone (e.g. product info) for later consideration
